The book which was in my mind when I made the list was Hotshot by Julie Garwood. JG is once of my favourite writer in romance category. So of course I was excited when I found out she was releasing a new book.
One of the reason I was really anticipated for this book because I read almost all of her books (minus the Roses trilogy). And another reason was because I was a bit dissappointed with the last book – Sweet Talk. In a way, I was hoping this nook can get me back in good faith to JD.

Did I set my expectation tooooo high?I gave 3.5/5 star. A bit better compared to Sweet Talk which I gave 3/5.
My comment on the book:
- The plot was too ‘straight’ ( I don’t know what is the correct term for this). No surprises or anything. Idk. Maybe because I’ve read too many books and watches too many tv show/movies, it was kind of too easy to predict the flow and what will happen next. The only part I was eager to see was the antics of cousin Debby to get extra money. 😦
- Again, the plot. No twist of the bad and/or good guys. Same problem I had with Sweet Talk. No need much guessing. Not even on how they tackled down the bad guys.
- The hero and heroin are tooooo perfect. Kind of turn me off a bit.
**Note: I read a comment once from JG fan where she said JG loves to use ‘arrogantly’ especially ‘arrogantly pleased’ and she has made a mission to count the frequency of the words used. That was why everytime I came across that phrase, I would chuckled. 😀
